All the Wings need to do to Win this series is skate for the FULL 60min finish every single hit and not skate off alot of them like Cleary,Franzen,Kronwall,Bertuzzi all have. Oh and Datsyuk needs to shoot more he had at least 4 chances in the slot/inside the circles to shoot instead tries to make a fancy pass. Of all guys Bertuzzi figured out there D first, we can catch them so easy Bertuzzi had 2 breakaways but the puck bounced on him. Yotes D play so offensive that they can be caught in deep. If we can get back to our old breakouts and stretch passes it would defintly slow them down knowing they cant rush 5 guys everytime.

Exactly.

Franzen has been the X-Factor in the early rounds of the playoffs and he NEEDS TO BE THAT PLAYER AGAIN if they are to advance. Teams focus all their efforts on shutting down Zetterberg and Datsyuk leaving Franzen to fly under the radar a little bit. I think he needs to be on a line by himself (i.e. without Z and D) to throw off Phoenix's defensive concentration.

I'll stand by my original prediction of Wings in 7. I agree that the Coyotes have scoring depth beyond Doan, but I see him as the heart and soul of that team. While it's a team sport, I really think his health may be the deciding factor to tilt this one way or the other.

Lidstrom and Raffi HAVE to play better as our first pair period... They have been very mediocre so far along with the rest of our D
C'mon Wings let's fly!!!

detroit wins out. no question.

We'll win the next one because we have to. Game 5 because we're better and Game 6 because this team learned how much it sucks not to put an opponent away at home.

IF the Red Wings win tomorrow... Red Wings in six.

IF the Coyotoes win tomorrow... our summer starts on Friday.

Someone better wake him up and let him know the playoffs started without him...he's been floating out there.

Um...this is rather routine. Look how quickly 3 wins pile up.

Game 4: Wings win, even the series.
Game 5: Wings ride momentum to a win.
Game 6: Due to two losses in a row (which is routine in playoffs), Phoenix panicks and loses Game 6.

So yes, it's entirely possible.


I never said it wasn't possible, I said that there is no reason to think it will happen at this point. It's possible that death rays from Mars will kill the Coyotes in their sleep but I wouldn't bet on it.

I still think Wings in 6, and if they lose tomorrow, I'll say Wings in 7.


Hear, hear! :thumbup:

I say Wings in 6, because if it turns out to be 'Yotes in 5, this means I'd be stuck driving all the way to western Indiana for my horrible cousin's horrible wedding the day after an elimination loss. And my Red Wings would never do that to me. They are the Heroes of Hockeytown, after all. :D

ETA: And Western Indiana is where Blackhawk fans are! Can you imagine the suck of going into that the day after an elimination?!?

You won't have to worry about it, because it is not going to happen. Wings in 6! ;)

Coyotes will win in 5. Sorry, but you heard it here first. I want the Wings to win, but they won't get it done this year. They don't have the passion.

Hopefully I'm wrong, but the Wings just look out of gas to me. Lots of hockey over the past few years. I think they're a better team than Phoenix but they just don't have the drive necessary this year.

Coyotes in 7.


sadly i agree with you :(.. i just don't think its Detroit's year.

I'd like to see Babcock really try to create matchup problems with the lines. Especially for game 5 when we don't have home-ice.

Homer-Pav-Eaves
Cleary-Z-Miller
Bert-Fil-Mule
Helm-Abby-Draper

Also maybe

Mule-Z-Pav
Bert-Fil-Homer
Eaves-Helm-Cleary
Draper-Abby-Miller

I'm not sure. I just think that there is some hidden chemistry with the players who haven't really gotten the chance to play with each-other on the same line.

Of course re-uniting the ZDH line could work

ZDH
Bert-Fil-Mule
Eaves-Helm-Cleary
Draper-Abby-Miller

I live in Chicago. It's awful after any kind of wings loss, let alone an elimination. You guys get to go to work and all feel bad together. I go to work and hear, "Wings suck!" all day.

If Howard gives up another soft, badly timed goal, and Babcock goes to Ozzie, then Wings in 6.

If Howie gives up another softie at a bad time and stays in, Phoenix in 6.

If Howie holds tight and plays well, Wings in 6.

In only Hudler were here! Then we'd have won in three!

If Hudler was here,we would have annihilated them in game 1 and they would have quit the series :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

This series will end up the same as Sundays score 4-2 Phoenix, im afraid the Wings just aint good enough this year. Not enough scoring depth and the D just aint consistent enough.
